  1. I saw a dream about an earthquake.It was like suddenly everything was shaking but like in a slow motion way so you had time to leave yet it wouldnt stop shaking and I remember how everyone in my house stayed calm and I was the only one terrified.I told my mom why don’t you open the door so we can leave while we can ? She said it’s not worth it bc it’s gonna get us before we are even out.So I decided to risk I opened the door I took that risk and got out by myself.However when I was out i was standing outside my home but suddenly nothing was shaking.I was shocked.then i go to this center where they offfer shelter and i find there all my highschool mates and college ones and strangers .All had felt the earthquake.There was a stranger with blue eyes somewhat bald guy that keept lookin at me with his piercing eyes.He offered me a bag to put my clothes but i did not accept was not mine.Then i left.When i left the place it seemed like i was in a prison and at the door the guard saluted me and gave me my former jackett.When i was out i felt relieved.But the streets were empty

  2. I just had a dream that the earthquake was a swaying one for a very long while and must of been around 9.0 I thought in my dream. I rushed to get my daughter out and it was all over with, the earthquake stopped but not much damage. I was pretty scared though. Also in my waking life, I’m pretty sure that I’m going to get a new job across a few statelines. So I think that’s what it means?
